video on distributed social network platform NoseRub

I just came across this video on Twitter by pixelsebi explaining Distributed social networks in a screencast, and especially a php application NoseRub. Here is the video.


Distributed Social Networking - An Introduction from pixelsebi on Vimeo.

On a "Read Write Web" article on his video, pixelsebi summarizes how all these technologies fit together:

To sum it up - if I would have to describe it somebody who has no real clue about it at all:
  1. Distributed Social Networking is an architecture approach for the social web.
  2. DiSo and Noserub are implementations of this "social web architecture"
  3. OpenSocial REST API is one of many ways to provide data in this distributed environment.
  4. OpenOScial based Gadgets might run some time at any node/junction of this distributed environment and might be able to handle this distributed social web architecture.

So I would add that foaf provides semantics for describing distributed social networks, foaf+ssl is one way to add security to the system. My guess is that the OpenSocial Javascript API can be decoupled from the OpenSocial REST API and produce widgets however the data is produced (unless they made the mistake of tying it too closely to certain URI schemes)
